Our sustainable fashion favs (a bit different from our usual shades of darkness, #thankyouverymuch). Think: creamy beige, gray, black...w/ some gorg burgundy thrown in.
We're back with some monthly sustainable picks -- winter edition. I've been basically drooling over the clothes I'm going to wear once this pandemic is over...and all the loungewear I haven't yet managed to get my hands on. Below I rounded up my sustainable favorites (some are even a bit different than my usual shades of darkness, thank you...
It's that time again: we're sharing our favorite items from Black-owned businesses that we've been drooling over (literally -- there's chocolate and cookies involved here). I also can't get over this Zelie for She Flower Child Set Kat picked out. It's on sale now and the most incredible print for spring. Love. Baked Goods, Bold Prints & Accessories: January...
I felt better about sipping a cocktail after I slapped on makeup, a spritz of perfume & decorated mahself w/ jewels. THAT is how my joggers + jewelry outfit was born.
Scotti and I were recently guests on Momtourage's video podcast, Live From The Couch! In our episode we discussed holiday style...but with a decidedly 2020 bent. Which means joggers, obviously. The Unexpected Answer To Dressing Up Joggers? Jewelry I had a realization several weeks ago — after a day of sweatpants and unwashed hair and no-makeup — that I...
To spark joy, we're going sustainable. Think handmade, artisanal, eco-friendly, Black-owned, fair trade & community supporting. Beautiful home decor, right this way.
I went in search of sustainable home decor inspiration, because I wanted to take a minute to celebrate the folks out there who work extra to create, find, and/or source items that are handcrafted — by artisans, sustainably and to support communities — that this community might otherwise not have access to. All of the businesses highlighted below...
This confection-disguised-as-skirt is a welcome way to end The Year of The Sweatpants & if you have any outdoor holiday parties planned, then let’s applaud this skirt as the most genius way to wear fleece leggings.
If "brings joy" is a legitimate factor in deciding what to wear (and, after the year we've had, it should be)...then let's call ShopBURU's tiered gold skirt a wardrobe staple. ShopBURU, if you haven't heard of this seriously fun online destination, is one of my very favorite small businesses. Morgan, the owner & designer, is a mom herself, so...
Shop Social Threads is right on time: a small, woman-owned business w/ fun fashion & brands we love. Rn? Sequins, patterns & prints are our top picks.
By now, most of you probably know Social Threads, right?! One of our very favorite retailers, started by two friends of ours (hi, Sara & Maureen!) with an emphasis on keeping it fun, high-quality & affordable. Our kinda people. Shop Social Threads Is Right On Time With Sequins, Patterns & Prints So, if you're looking to shop small this holiday, Social...
A shop small opportunity we're thrilled about: Makers Union PDX & Portland Made offer Window Shop 2020. Support local artists + benefit the Black Resilience Fund. SO good.
My dear friend — photographer, maker, and Portland Textile Month organizer — Christopher Dibble, recently collaborated to create a new makers union here in Portland called Makers Union PDX. The artisan pieces from local craftspeople are gorgeous, and the efforts to support the community, and specifically The Black Resilience Fund, are lovely. So, I wanted to share it with...
For Giving Tuesday, we're looking at gifts that give back. A fun kit for date night-in from Boon Supply totally nails it. Shop with us (for a cause).
A huge thank you to Boon Supply for sponsoring this post. If this year has proven anything, it's that I have a serious number of people in my life to be thankful for. Some will come as no surprise: my little family unit. My momma. Lana's teacher, who is managing 22 kindergarteners from her bedroom "office" while her twin girls...
Trend alert: sustainable gifts. The best part, we found 25 earth-friendly products (gratitude, home, kitchen & travel) that make useful presents. You're welcome.
About those good intentions... It's easy to hope that your gift recipient will use that gift you thought so much about, but you can't always be too sure (especially when it comes to sustainable alternatives; people are sometimes...leery). 5-Star Sustainable Gifts: Earth-Friendly Products They'll Actually Use These 25 eco-friendly, sustainable gifts are useful and effective. The team has tested most...
Found: The black NINOBrand Tommy Pants are downright cool. Windproof, with a zipper to execute a cropped look & from a small biz. Here's how to style 'em.
NINOBrand, one of my longtime favorites, is one of Philadelphia's most coveted brands. Designed in Philadelphia by Bela Shehu (and made in the USA), I'd like to say that her line is timeless (and it is)...but timeless is too often synonymous with 'classic' and that simple word doesn't do NINOBrand justice. NINOBrand's clothing is, quite simply, very, very cool. It's...
